I've watched his videos for awhile, and I usually detest YouTube gun person lecture videos. Noir's different, though.

He's very well-spoken. You don't hear "um." He maintains a steady, if brisk cadence, with emphasis on the right words. The guy's a born orator.

Furthermore, he really does appeal to the middle instead of preaching to the choir. There's no real feeling of ego-feeding or chest-beating. The guy wants to make his point, and he does it well.

Then there's the fact that he's black. That does matter here. Noir can speak more credibly of the racism in gun control, and he can address inner city violence without sounding like a patronizing sociology professor.

He's an unexpected choice and a welcome surprise. Now, somebody get him to come on here and start posting!
